Dhoti is traditional Indian dresses worn by males in the Indian subcontinent to cover the lower parts of the body. The term Dhoti cancer was first used by Khanolkar and Suryabhai in 1945. It is a type of waistline SCC reported in Indian males wearing dhoti. Only a handful of cases are reported in English literature. This case is remarkable due to its rare site of presentation, simultaneous presence of carcinoma and suspicious acanthosis on both side of waist in the same patient. Any hypo pigmented patch and acanthosis on the waist area in a dhoti clad man should be viewed with suspicion and continuous surveillance is needed thereof.
